Applications call for GSA MyGalileoDrone Competition 2020
The aim of the contest is to design, develop, test, and prepare for commercial launch a drone-based application and/or serviceable to provide a position and/or time fix by using Galileo -enabled receiver. The use of Galileo shall be understood in a broad sense, and not limited to the navigation components in the flying platform.
The MyGalileoDrone Competition is open to the integration of Galileo in any of the drone components or other equipment supporting the operations, that is, the flying platform (autopilot or another payload), the ground control station, or any other devices supporting the implementation of the application, such as smartphone, as well as external ones, such as U-Space services.
There are 4 prizes for a total of €230.000 awarded as follow:
- 1st Prize: €100.000
- 2nd Prize: €60.000
- 3rd Prize: €40.000
- 4th Prize: €30.000
- Participation in MyGalileoDrone Competition is open to teams, ideally from one (1) to seven (7) participants, composed by natural persons or legal entities. Each team must appoint a team coordinator to serve as the central contact point and represent the team towards GSA.
- Natural person applicant shall be EU Members States citizen or citizen of Switzerland or Norway.
- All applicants must be at least 18 years of age by the date of registration to the contest.
- In the case of a legal entity, its central administration or registered office must be located in the EU Member States or in Switzerland or in Norway.
- Innovation (0-5): Is this kind of application or service not yet available on the market? Is the application technologically advanced (e.g. using multi-frequency, innovative algorithms)?
- Market potential (0-5): Is this application/service sellable after repackaging this idea into a real service? Is there a potential market demand/customer base for this product?
- Galileo-relevance (0-5): Is the application/service making use of Galileo? Is the increased accuracy offered by Galileo relevant for the application? Is the increased robustness provided by multi-constellation / multi-frequency relevant for the application?
- Technical feasibility and service readiness (0-5): What is the level of progress since the start of the contest? Has the required level of completion for the phase been fully achieved?1 Is the applications/service ready to be delivered in the market?
- Address regional development needs (0-5): Does the solution address needs of regional markets or improve the offer available in regional markets for the services proposed to be provided by the drone-based solution? In case additional authorization is needed from the relevant national authority, are they identified, and is the plan to achieve them credible?
